Have you met a loud, egotistical, authoritative, narrow-minded person, who tries to use fear, threats, intimidation, and shame to get the results that they want? These kinds of people are not empty but ﬁlled with insecurities.
Accomplishing very difﬁcult things certainly brings power and status, but humility helps you not to abuse it. Rather, it helps you focus your power and status on helping and encouraging others to rise, even above you, and do even greater things.
I’m fond of saying, “Accomplishing something great is nothing if you fail to help others accomplish great things too.” We rise by lifting others.
